Famous authors who have self-published

28 Sep

Self-publishing is often the best – and sometimes the only – way for writers to get their works into print.  Many famous self-published writers whose works have become ‘Best Sellers’ are Walt Whitman, Thomas Paine, Edgar Allan Poe, T.S. Elliot, Carl Sandberg, Gertrude Stein, Deepak Chopra, Upton Sinclair, D.H. Lawrence, George Bernard Shaw, e.e. cummings, Henry David Thoreau, Virginia Woolf, Margaret Atwood, Tom Clancy, Stephen Crane and many, many more.  Their works have sold millions of copies because they refused to give up on rejection letters from major publishing houses.  After self-publishing their writings their works were subsequently picked up by major publishing houses.  Some of these authors kept on self-publishing after their books were famous, and they were able to maintain control of how their books were marketed while making more profits as well.  Read more:
